I put one of those clamp on side stands on my GF, did not work, would not grip the frame. They need brazing on without damaging the crankcase.

I did experiment a bit. The centre round trim seems to accept the chrome trim via two slots, then the thick rubber should hold them in centre that will pin them down permanently. Thanks for reply.

Nice one Crofty. Got my four position genuine Lucas ignition switch today, the fun begins. Still curious about that black Lucas turn switch for the lights, cannot find it on the diagrams. 19-1095 ?

Twins / Tank Chrome Trim.
« on: 22 February, 2018, 16:58:19 »
I have a four gallon Bread Bin tank, just got two new trims for the front and back of the centre of the tank. Under the tank is two slots which the flat ends of the trim slot into front and back. Do I then cut the centre ends of the trim to fit under the chrome Beading Holder. Is it that simple or am I ? Be gentle please.

All done, I took the front wheel out and fine tuned the bearings; all is good thanks.

Get a copy of Old Bike Mart, always loads advertising in there.

Hi Chauky. I kept looking at switch 11, it can't control the lights, I think. The only other switch that end is the front brake stop switch ?

Which BSA do you ride? / Re: new to the forum and classics

Welcome and enjoy. Don't just pull it to bits and put it in boxes. Try putting oil down the plug holes for a few days to free it off for a start. Clean fuel tank out, clean carb and try to get a spark. Do loads of research in you spare time. I cut my teeth on Minis, not much difference. You will get lots of help on here. Don't throw anything away. If not sure takes pictures and ask us. Regards  :D

Hi Thumper. I have almost the identical 1971-72 diagram, it does not show the black switch that is on the top of the headlight shell. It would appear that mine was factory fitted ? Can't find it in the Lucas manuals either, a right puzzler ? Just looked on Dragonfly site, they list the switch in the headlight 19-1095 as a Kill Switch and in the price list they call it a lighting switch.

I am about to buy a new ignition switch for my 1971. I was lead to believe that all OIF's had a four position switch. I too have a switch on the headlight shell. Does anyone have a definitive answer on these 1971 and 1971 OIF's, sorry to hijack thread.

I have a factory manual now. Haynes one is free, just send me a stamped address envelope ( PM ). It's not for sale so I put it in this section.

I am looking at new Lucas 4 position switches for my OIF. They are about 42 new. Looking at the 2 position, it will work and is cheaper. Do you really need a parking light ?

They look nice Bess. They may foul the chassis of the air-box if it is still fitted to his OIF.

Pancakes allow plenty of air in I would suggest. Plenty of second hand OIF air boxes about and they do spray up nice.
